    We say this month after month, but greeting you at a new studio or gym for #Sweatworking, working out next to you and sharing a snack with you after a killer sweat is the highlight of our day, week and month.

    As we looked back over more than two years of working out as a community, we thought, “why not make a week of it?” June 6 through 12, we’re kicking your summer off with a week dedicated to #Sweatworking. Consider this to be a restaurant week for fitness with one big closing party at FFC West Loop, where we’ll take over the rooftop pool and bar area. If you choose to imbibe, your first drink is on aSweatLife to celebrate a week of hard work.

    And we will call this #SweatworkingWeek.

    Over the course of this week, we’re partnering up with some of our favorite gyms across the city to offer at least three classes each day that are completely dedicated to #SweatworkingWeek attendees. You’ll know that in every class, you’ll see or meet some friends along the way.

    We’re working with our exclusive media partner RedEye to spread the word and they’ll be giving away some complimentary tickets before the week starts, so keep your eyes peeled.

    You can purchase the unlimited ticket for $60 now, and get in as many classes as you want that week OR you can purchase each class as a la carte for $15 a pop.

    Here’s what you get with an unlimited ticket:

    • A Full 24 hours of access to booking your classes on the #SweatworkingWeek schedule before anyone else
    • As many #SweatworkingWeek Sessions as you can handle!

    We want to take this week when the temperatures are starting to rise (we’re guessing here, because at this rate, it could be 80 degrees or it could snow) to encourage you to keep up with your studio fitness routines in a way that keeps your outdoor routine strong and injury-free all summer long.

    What’s on the schedule?

    While this may change ever so slightly, we don’t anticipate it changing much.
